TALISMANS OF DEATH
?!l ;
Tragedy Stalks in Wake of Charms
i Now in British Museums.
There is the munupy of the high
priestess of Amen.-Ra in the British
Museum. This priestess belonged
to the Royal family of Egypt.
A party of four young Englishmen
obtained a mummy about 30 year?
ago in Egpyt. 'One cf the young
men was crippled before they lef*>
that country, and another was shot
shortly before reaching England.
A third died suddenly, and the fourtl/
followed him after losing a large
fortune.
The sister of the last hasitly pre
sented the mummy to the museum.
The man who drove it there died
within a week while one who helped
to carry it into the building soon
afterward had both leges cut off in, a
railway accident.,
The first man who attempted to
photograph the mummy case fell, se
verely. The first writer who des
cribed the ill luck that followed it
died socn afterward.
Finally, the daughter of the Mar
cnicncss cf Salisbury, who went to
lock at the mummy, fell and sprained
her ankle!
Another ill luck bringer that was
thrown out of th> house and given
to the museum was a carved teak
wcod image cf Buddha.
It was stolen from a Buddhist
temple in lower Burma by a sea cap
tain. When the ship carrying it was
near Liverpool a fire broke out ?n
board. The crew threw the image
overboard, believing the idol was re
sponsible, and they reached port in
srfetv.
The image was washed ashore ir
Wales and claimed by its owner, the
captain. Socn afterward Jics-died
His daughters kept the Buddha ir
their house for several years, durme
which time one cf them died sudden
ly, though Perfectly healthy. Ther
it was given to the museum.
An Ir.dan idol is said to have beer
responsible for the assassination o^
President Carnot of France. It-be?
lcngcd to one cf the* rulers of Ind*&
and there was a traelition that th.
idol bestowed power with one han:;
and death with the other.
Ruler after ruler who possessed
the idol was assassinated. When
Grcat: Britain conquered India, the
idol, then in the possession of th'.
Rajah, who lost his life fijrhtinr
against the British, fell into hunvuV
ha"dJ? It ccntinucd to o;:,,g cvJ for
tune in its train, however.
Ariong its possessors who died
suddenly before it reached President
Carnot. we.re a nrfajor of British cav
alry, a Brahmin princess, a rich
money lender ar.d an eld dealer in
antiquities.
Garnet was not an ambitmis man,
but when he became possessed of the
idol, fame and power came to h:nr
unexpectedly. When he became
Presdcnt, Carnot began to receive
letters threatening his lfe. In ??iav
18S9, less than two years after his
election he was shot at, but escaped.
On July 13, 1891, another attempt ?
was made on his life, but again fail
ed. Finally in June, 1894, the Presi
dent was fatally stabbed by Santo I
Cesaric. . j
Mine. Caroot, who t:mc and again i
had n-.iplored her hsuband to get rid
I of the idol, gave instructions for it
to be destroyed. It was smashed to
pieces by workers with sledge ham
mers.?(Stray Stories.
FOR AIR PASCSEXGER LINE
Pritaul^rs Hope Within Year to Start
Regular Service With Giant
Dirigible
? Akron, Ohio, June 5.?Within a
year it plans of Akron promoters hold
trua, giant passenger dirigibles will
leave their hangars here, bound for
New York, Chicago, Omaha, Canada
Florida, Texas and the pacific Coast.
And if these ights are successful,
and the monetary returns are suffi
cient, work will start upon giant air
ships. even larger than the Zeppelin.
capable of crossing the Atlantic, an.'
a regular passenger sen-ice will lr
established between New York an:'
London.
These are not dreams. They arc th
plans of veterans of air navigation
men who have spent years piloting
balloons, airships and airplanes, nn
backed by a corporation that ha'
!>e?n making dirigibles for years.
A dirigible 300 feet long capable
of traveling 75 miles an hour is fav
n*able weather, and 50 miles an houi
in windy weather, will open daily
??ervice between Akron and Cleveland
I ~>hio, a distance of 35 miles.
This, however, is but the trial ser
vice. If this proves successful the ser
'ice will be extended, first to Xav
Yprk and Chicago, and then through
i iut the United Stales.
Landing places will be obtained i' i
j ?he very heart of tfiese cities, proh
ibly on the roofs of the tallest hotel
Unlike airplanes, which need a larg
landing place, the airships need but : i
small platform upon which to dock I
? The first of this fleet of air.liners
will carry 12 passengers.
'It is now under construction at the
plant of the Goodyear Tire and Rub
ber Company.
j.) Tho dirigibles will be from 300 to
800 fest' in length. They will carry
frcm 12 to 100 passengers: The ex
pre.rs airships will carry about 100
!tons cf express.
It is estimated that the trip to New
j Ypik, about 600 milas, could bo made
in eight hours. It new takes about 16
hcur=. A trip to San Francisco, mors
than 2.000 miles. and now taking
four days, could be accomplished in
about 50 hours.
I Rates,, it is estimated, will be aboul
j three times the railroad fare.

Never before has the American public had [he money
to spend which it has today. 1
The merchant or manufacturer who sits back and
waits for this money to come to him without making
any effort to get it will awaken when it is too late.
He will then realize .that his more aggressive com
petitor has been on the job and has taken advantage
of the strongest sales weapon known to industry,
namely, advertising.
Don't wait for things to come your way without
doing anything to help them along.
